Good Things and Courage
Oh. Do you know what I did? I got real serious about cleaning the entire oven-stove-hood, and I was putting all of my elbow grease and grit into my mission! Scrub! Scour! Scrub, and don't tell anyone, but I cleaned some of the labels clear off! It's not good. I know. What can I do? Black lettering on stainless steal, and whatever it said, is clean gone. Don't you agree that lettering on a steel appliance ought to adhere well enough to take some deep cleaning? oh dear.
"A friend is one who overlooks your broken fence and admires the flowers in your garden." I have this saved on my phone, but I don't know who wrote it.
I, myself, am entirely made of flaws, stitched together with good intentions. ~Augusten Burroughs
There is no beauty without some strangeness. ~Edgar Allen Poe
We need beauty because it makes us ache to be worthy of it. ~Mary Oliver
